Can you kill whatever popped your jam (botulism?) through cooking or freezing?
My housemate noticed today that one of our jars of jam had a popped top. We would seriously hate to lose half our jam, so is there any way to safely consume it? Or do we just have to toss it? Would freezing or boiling or baking work or will the toxins still be there and nasty, though dead?
